We’re inviting girls aged 13-17 years old throughout Bedfordshire and beyond to experience a day to remember and celebrate being a girl in the digital age. This event encourages girls to celebrate their girlhood, discover who they are and who they aspire to be.
Teen girls and guardians; Mum, aunt, grandma, older sister, cousin, register to join our Community Conference and please encourage loved ones who would also benefit from this experience to attend. This is the perfect opportunity for you to connect with other like-minded girls in a safe environment and gain the confidence you need to conquer the world!
This celebration of girlhood is a hybrid event – So wherever you’re based, feel free to join for the conference virtually. If you’re in Bedfordshire or the surrounding areas then come along to hear from our speakers in person.

Our first event took place in Luton on Friday, 11th October 2019 to celebrate the International Day of the Girl. The Conference theme was Anxious/Stressed/ Depressed, No More! We were so excited to encourage, empower and inspire the girls of Luton and Beds.
The wonderful speakers we had were Hasina, the Self-defence expert, Tene Edwards, writer, author and self-love advocate from Walk With Wings, Anjeli Parmar from Love Gold Boutique and of course Jasmine Mbye, Speaker, Trainer, Coach and Director of The Like Me CIC. Each speaker shared how they have dealt or deal with Anxiety, Stress and/or Depression. We created a safe space to share and it was a memorable day, we marked the occasion well. The refreshments and a light meal went down well too.
